The External Flagpole Beacon is the most environmentally correct way for flag illumination on flagpoles during night hours. For the first time, flags can be properly lit during nighttime hours without lighting adjoining properties and the night sky! As light pollution and light trespass become increasingly important issues for city and county governments across the country, the Flagpole Beacon already complies with these new regulations. Its patented design (U.S. Patent 7,275,495) lights the flag only and follows the flag as the wind blows it around the flagpole.
The Flagpole Beacon is certified as an IDA Approved Dark-Sky Friendly Fixture. This series of Dark Sky Flagpole Beacon features a shield over the LED lights to minimize glare and reduce light trespass, in accordance with International Dark Sky Association guidelines.
